Raytheon has won a $65 million contract to provide engineering and technical support services for the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System (CIWS), and Land-based Phalanx Weapon System and the SeaRAM.
The firm was awarded a contract for design agent engineering and technical support services for the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System (CIWS), SeaRAM, and Land-based Phalanx Weapon System.
The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $398.6 million. Work is expected to be completed by January 2018.
The ship and shore Phalanx CIWS is a Gatling gun, fast-reaction terminal defense against low- and high-flying, high-speed maneuvering anti-ship missile threats that have penetrated all other defenses.
CIWS Operates either autonomously or can be integrated with a combat system. It is an automatic terminal defense weapon system designed to detect, track, engage, and destroy anti-ship missile threats penetrating outer defense envelopes.
The SeaRAM system is an 11-missile launcher assembly that replaces the Phalanx system’s 20 mm gun with Raytheon's RAM missile. The RAM is a supersonic, lightweight, quick-reaction, fire-and-forget weapon designed to destroy anti-ship missiles.
The missile requires no additional direction upon launch and its passive radio frequency and infrared guidance provide high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously.
